SiGeC + CMOS Technology

The Quantum Semi technology platform combines state-of-the-art CMOS and Si-Ge-C superlattice materials. SiGeC superlattice films have radical optoelectronic properties, enabling highly-efficient light absorption and light emission in an extended wavelength range from Ultra-Violet through Infra-Red. Platform designs include avalanche photodiodes, Geiger counters, pixels, solar cells, transistors, thermoelectric converters and supporting circuitry.
